Euro 2012
« on: June 11, 2012, 05:07:08 pm »
I was suprised to see that there was no thread for Euro 2012 when I wanted to cheer about England taking the lead against France. So anyway I decided to make one. Who do you want and who do you think will win? Also feel free to comment on matches and anything else related to the tournament.
I became aware of my destiny: to belong to the critical minority as opposed to the unquestioning majority.

I was up to begin a thread about 2012, but nice that you (Chris) gave the kick-off!

Anyway, I think that Germany has a good chance to win this Euro. Organized and compact team with plenty playmakers that don't loose the patience easily when looking for the goal.

Italy - Spain was the best match that I saw until now and it surprised me the capacity of Italy to regenerate from a very difficult situation that his coach had with the lack of players available to choose.

Spain seemed several points below the expected and Portugal suffers from a quite traditional lack of killer instinct when it comes to put the ball on the net.

 
In the end everything will be ok. If not, that's not the end

From what I can see thus far, Italy may just be the dark horse in this tournament.  Hear alot of talk about Germany and Spain being the odds on favorites.  Still early in the tourney, but I think the favorites (whomever they may be) will emerge very soon.

It was good to watch Germany play while actually living in Germany. Although sometimes I wasn't sure if the commentator was saying a German word I didn't know who the name of a player.

what an outcome of the group A - two teams of the group who were favorites are now going home - Poland and Russia

what do you think about tonight's matches?
Portugal vs. Netherlands ( tonight Portugal has better chances of winning but despite that NED still can theoretical go trough by winning this match)
Denmark vs. Germany ( it will be a hard game, but i think the germans will win)

Portugal vs. Netherlands i think given holland knows they have to win they will go all out attack and get the win in a tough game or im hoping so since ive placed a bet that has them winning lol
I hope u hadn't betted too much money on that! :345678
I believe in a draw; we will see in a couple of hours how it went...

Well, it is not a matter of towel-throwing, it is more how the rules are. 90 minutes of regular play divided into two halves, and then one of several tie breakers if the score is currently at a draw. The currently most common standard is a 30-minute extension divided into two halves, then five penalty kicks for each team (taking turns), then single penalty kicks until one team scores while the other misses. There have historically been other tie breakers such as the golden goal (that is to say they continue playing until a single goal is scored or until a time limit is reached, at which point they will proceed with another tie breaker). That is about all I know about association football, though.

As an American, I very rarely pay any attention to European soccer or soccer in general, however I did happen to watch nearly the entirety of the England v. Italy game earlier this week. 120 minutes with zero goals. I passed out at a certain point and when I woke up the score board said 2-2 and I couldn't believe 1) something had happened and 2) I had missed it, but then I realized that even they had thrown in the towel and moved on to penalty kicks. In fairness, I got unlucky and watched a game with no goals which I suppose is a rarity, but it amazes me that it's the most watched sport in the world.

You were lucky to pass out. I gave up and started reading a book.

Germany will obviously finish second place. I mean, many of the players are from a club that has just finished second in three different competitions.
